Selection process not my job, says Kohli on Karun’s omission

Rajkot: Commenting on the ongoing selection debate on Karun Nair, Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Monday said the selection process is not his job.

Despite scoring a triple-hundred Nair was not included in the playing XI for the next match. He also did not get the chance in the England tour and warmed the bench throughout the series.

“Selection is not my job. As a team we are doing what we are supposed to. Everyone should be aware of their respective jobs,” Kohli told reporters here.

“Selectors have already spoken about it and it is not my place to say. There are selectors doing their job.

“You can conveniently merge everything and make it a circle where everyone is doing their job and not focusing on what people are saying on the outside,” he added.

Chief selector M.S.K. Prasad also clarified that Nair was spoken to at length over his omission.
